Guest Hill 60 Posted 30 October , 2002 Share Posted 30 October , 2002 I have, in my collection, a British War Medal & Victory Medal to A-557797 A.WO Cl 2 E. E. Pecriaux of the Army Service Corps. Along with these medals is a French medal which I'd describe as looking just like the Legion d'Honneur (1870-1951) except that the centre is red with the word 'PARIS' in gold and around the red centre, in a blue band, are the words 'SALON CULINAIRE'. The ribbon is made up of two stripes, red and green. I was told that Pecriaux served as a chef for the Chiefs of Staff, judging by his surname & the inclusion of the French medal this could be quite true. What I'd like to know is has anyone else come across this medal (or even Pecriaux) in their travels? Also, does anyone with knowledge of the PRO have an idea where I would have to look to find out a) what the medal is and how Pecriaux qualified for it?
